ANALYZING THE GUANYIN SCULPTURE: A VIRTUAL MUSEUM MOMENT

Wednesday, February 1, 12 - 1 pm
THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM

Join us virtually as we go behind-the-scenes of the Gardner Museum's conservation lab, with Jessica Chloros, Objects Conservator. Hear about the exciting discoveries and surprises behind the 21st Century analysis of our 12th Century Chinese Guanyin sculpture. Guanyin is a Buddhist deity, often called the Bodhisattva of Compassion, and was one of the last great pieces of Chinese art that Gardner purchased in 1919. Today you can find Guanyin perched in the same location where Gardner originally displayed it over the entrance to a subterranean room that once contained a significant collection of Asian art.
